No USB working?
« on: November 11, 2009, 05:45:25 PM »
I had Windows XP on my computer (specs on right) and switched back to 2000 a few days ago. I just noticed that my USB is not working but is was with XP. I don't know how to find out what motherboard I have (i know it's a VIA Apollo with I think USB 1.1). I've attached a snapshot of what Device Manager shows for USB support.

Can someone help me get my USB working?

"Everest Home" does not work on my PC. It starts to load and scan stuff and then freezes everything (mouse does not even move) at "Scanning PCI Devices". I've been waiting 30 and still no change.

Any other ideas?

That's odd, it's usually the other way around.

I know, It really confuses me.

I don't see anything in my profile that would tell what board I have.
My profile is attached, take a look.

You never mentioned Win98...for that DLoad and run AIDA32...
This is why we thrive on details...

I saw Win2K and XP listed...

Why the change in OS?  If you had not made that change, you wouldn't be having this problem.  How about going back to XP?

Nevermind, I saw your other thread, and your hardware specs.

My system specs are low for XP. Windows 2000 gives me way better performance.
I did consider switching back to XP but it is not something I really want to do. I've can't get this problem fixed then I may actually do that. But I know that there must be a solution to this problem.

In order to fix this you need to re-install your MBoard drivers...
In order to find your drivers you need to determine what MBoard is in there...

Since Everest won't run on that you've been given 2 other suggestions:

Belarc Advisor
AIDA 32

and a 3rd:
SIW  (System Info for Windows )

All these are FREE and at least 1 of them should work.
Now get busy.... ;D

SIW worked great thanks.

- Here is the info it gives me on the Motherboard section -
Northbridge - VIA Apollo VP3 revision 04
Southbridge - VIA VT82C586 revision 04
CPU - AMD K6 3D processor
Cpu Socket - Socket 7 (321)

So what do I need to find my motherboard driver, North bridge or South? And do have any recommended place for me to look for a driver at?

Haha sure was.  :-\
I still don't know whether to look for the Sth bridge model number or the Nth bridge number when looking for a driver.

I erased my suggestion.  I did not realize all the top guns were on hand.

Carry on Major,  I'll be in the area all day.

I've always found it useful to even look at the mainboard,  :P

my K6-2 uses a MVP-3G (I think) motherboard;  but, given the age of the machine it would make sense if the operating system automatically installed and dfetected the chipset drivers.

Have we tried removing everything related to USB from device manager and rebooting?
I was trying to dereference Null Pointers before it was cool.

I does not list a motherboard model. It just says Motherboard and lists the bridges.
CPU-Z also gives me just the following:
Chipset - VIA Apollo VP3 revision 04
Southbridge - VIA VT82C586

There's a part number printed on it somewhere.
